Restricted Fire Zone expands boundaries to include Thunder Bay and portions of Nipigon and Wawa districts

From Kenora, Fort Frances to Wawa

NORTHWESTERN, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~~~~   July 9, 2021  (LSN)  Due to high to extreme forest fire hazard conditions, effective 12:01 a.m. Saturday July 10, the Ontario Ministry of Northern Development, Mines, Natural Resources and Forestry has issued updated boundaries for a Restricted Fire Zone in the Kenora, Fort Frances, Dryden and Thunder Bay Districts and portions of the Sioux Lookout, Red Lake, Nipigon and Wawa Districts.  The Restricted Fire Zone will be in effect until further notice. Outdoor fires are banned. Portable gas stoves may still be used BUT must be handled with extreme care.  

Northeast Region

  • One new wildland fire was confirmed in the Northeast region by late afternoon on July 9.
    • Timmins 10 is located approximately 42 kilometres southeast of Foleyet. It is estimated at 70 hectares and is not yet under control. Aerial fire suppression is currently underway and it is expected to continue until the early evening.
  • There are currently ten other active fires in the region, of these, one is being held, five are under control and four are being observed.
  • The fire hazard is mostly low to moderate in areas of the region situated south of Greater Sudbury; as well as along the James and Hudson Bay coasts in the Far North portion of the Cochrane sector. The remainder of the region is presenting a mostly high hazard, with a small portion of the Cochrane sector presenting an extreme fire hazard this afternoon.

Thunder Bay Fire Rescue has issued a fire ban on all open and recreational burning within the city of Thunder Bay effective midnight tonight. This ban on outdoor burning is consistent with the Ontario Ministry of Natural Resources and Forestry’s Restricted Fire Zone declaration. 

Residents are reminded that all burning permits are suspended when a fire ban is in effect. Any open burning during a fire ban will result in prosecution and substantial fine. This fire ban will be lifted when weather conditions improve.

The community’s cooperation is appreciated. Thunder Bay Fire Rescue will advise when the fire ban and suspension of permits is lifted. City of Thunder Bay residents can still use propane fire bowls and heaters, pizza ovens, and BBQs but residents are urged to exercise caution with any device or activity that could cause a fire.

Iola Car Show prepares for Rally for Iola - Sept. 18th

Robert McKenzie 0 2989 Article rating: No rating

NORTHERN, WISCONSIN ~~~~~~  August 16 , 2021  (LSNews) When the Iola Car Show was cancelled in 2020, the staff held a car cruise to celebrate all things cars. This cruise brought in over 1,000 cars that travelled through surrounding communities. This showcase was a treat for Waupaca County - most volunteers are local and without the Iola Car Show, they could really enjoy the car cruise. It was such a "feel-good" event that it will happen again, this time on September 18th, as a last hoorah before the car show seasons takes a break. All show cars are welcome - there is no cutoff year!
